Bianca makes a shocking discovery which brings her whole world crashing down. Tamwar receives flowers that he assumes are for him, but on closer inspection they are for Masood.

Tamwar’s received lots of get well cards and everyone’s asking after him. A bouquet of flowers arrives for Masood; Tamwar and AJ read the card, it’s from Ayesha suggesting Masood could still join her and declaring she still loves him. Tamwar’s angry – Masood told him nothing was going on between them. He confronts Masood, bins the flowers then nearly calls Zainab. Later, Masood’s honest with his son and explains what happened; he was a fool but loves Tamwar and couldn’t leave.

The police arrive at the Butchers’ to speak to Tiffany about the mugging. Bianca receives a letter from Liam’s school about his positive change of attitude and how it must, in part, be down to her; smug, Bianca crows about it to Ray and Ian. Bianca’s confused when she’s assigned a new probation officer, unaware that Steve Lowe has dropped her case so he can ethically spend time with Carol. At the Vic, Steve explains to Carol they’re got something in common – his daughter Emily died and would have been the same age as Billie. Back at the Butchers’ Bianca tidies Liam’s room and finds some blank headed notepaper from his school and Tamwar’s money belt.

Denise apologises to Ian; she’s clearly stressed about Patrick. When Denise arrives home she’s surprised to find Ian already there having cooked Patrick lunch. Patrick heads to his room to watch the racing leaving Ian and Denise alone. Over tea, Ian opens up about his time on the streets - his despair, his lowest point and a little girl who offered him a crisp. Denise comforts him, she’s been there too. The pair kiss. Denise sends Ian away before Kim comes home but tells him to sneak back later.

Patrick’s amused to see Abi and Jay sneaking into the B&B to spend the evening together.
